Navigating Healthcare – Patient Safety and Personal Healthcare Management

Technology as an Aid vs Hinderance to Doctors

Posted in Health, Healthcare, HealthIT by drnic on August 12, 2013

A recent article in Becker Hospital Review:  Technology Should Aid Human Interaction: Q&A with Dr. Nick Terheyden, CMIO of Nuance featured some important points to make


Health IT needs to fade into the background. It needs to become part of the fabric of the office rather than the focal point, and then the interaction will change

  • Using the tools to allow the clinician to focus on the patient not the technology
  • Human beings deal in narrative and stories, patients want to tell their story and clinicians need the richness of the narrative to help guide medical decision making
  • Remove the Physical Barriers to the clinicians patient interaction
  • Healthcare is not the focus – the patient is

The key to our future and to the successful use of health IT will be turning the focus back on patient and the physician.
